Yahoo Launches Mail and Messenger Apps for Android and misses the mark for business users. As an Android phone owner, I was quite excited to hear on Mashable about the new Yahoo email. I was hoping the new app had many of the features found on the web interface, specifically the ability to switch to business email accounts from their webhosting services. Alas, I was incorrect. The app only accesses primary email accounts with no ability to switch to secondary accounts.
Although Yahoo offers a variety of business services, this new app shows that they do not take businesses seriously. Any Yahoo app on the Android platform should embrace the business user and provide the functionality that promotes the adoption of Yahoo services for business.
I hope that Yahoo rethinks their app and adds the ability to manage multiple accounts. It would benefit both business and non-business email users.
